Chalet Etoile Polaire - Location and Local Information

Chalet Etoile Polaire is in the mountain village of Les Collons in the canton of Valais. As a ski resort it links into the eastern sector of the extensive 4 Valley ski domain. The village stands at 1800/1850 metres and benefits from additional snow making facilities so skiers and boarders are guaranteed snow from December through to April.

The chalet boasts a convenient, central location which is just a few minutes walk to the pistes and the main chairlift up to Thyon 2000.
